>>> 30 minutes from now the president of the united states will address the american people. >> welcome to cnn's breaking news coverage of president obama's surprise visit to afghanistan. the president will be telling us about the new strategic partnership agreement he has just signed with afghanistan's president outlining the relationship between the united states and afghanistan after the withdrawal of u.s. forces at the end of 2014. white house officials tell us the timing was driven by the negotiations over that agreement at an upcoming nato summit. critics will say it is about politics. everyone knows today is the anniversary of the raid in pakistan that killed osama bin laden. on the ground, do people there -- are they aware that president obama is on the ground? >> reporter: late in the afternoon the sun went down there was a report on afghan media suggesting that he was already in kabul. since then we have seen absolute silence across the city occasionally by helicopters and that is presumably some part of the president in and out of the capital. the speech we are ab
the president of the united states turned out to be a dlib fabrication because for sduecury reasons he made a trip under the veil of secrecy. this is standard operating procedure for presidents visiting america's various war zones. shortly after the 2008 election in which he was elected president, after the election but before the new president had been sworn in in december of 2008, then still president george w. bush took one of these surprise trips the, unannounced trips to background. it was december 14th, 2008. that's when this happened. >> yes. everybody calm down for a minute. first of all, thank you for apologizing on behalf of the iraqi people. it doesn't bother me. if you want the facts, it's a size 10 shoe that he threw. >> boy, if you were not surprised enough to find out that the president had surprise, gone to iraq, the president having a shoe hurled at him was definitely a surprise that day. when you look at the official transcript from this, we posted a link to it on our blog tonight. when you go through the transcript of this event, when you get to the part where the guy thr
was in baghdad was to sign the agreement which committed the united states to end our war in iraq. it was an agreement that president obama then followed through on. the last u.s. troops left iraq in december. today, in afghanistan it was not a status of forces agreement. it was called a strategic partnership agreement between the u.s. and afghan government but the idea is the same. it's to commit both countries to a plan by which the united states will end our war there. >> today i signed an agreement between the united states and afghanistan that defines a new relationship between our countries. a future in which afghans are responsible for the security of their nation and we build an equal partnership between two states. as we move forward some people will ask why we need a firm timeline. the answer is clear. our goal is not to build a country in america's image or to eradicate the taliban. these objectives would require in many years, many more dollars and most importantly many more american lives. our goal is to destroy al qaeda and we on path to do exactly that. afghans want

has on bin laden. and trying to sell -- trying to explain why the united states is going to be staying in afghanistan in one form or another for another, what is it now, 12 years. i mean, that is an amazing number when you think about it. a ten-year commit many here. now this is both on the economics front and on troops and all of that is still to be negotiated. every years, there will be a lobbying effort to convince congress to fund aid programs to afghanistan. we can only imagine what some of those political fights might look like over the next decade, plus two years. that said, this isn't going to be the easiest thing for the president to be explaining tonight. this is not spiking the football. i think at first when people heard rumor the president was going to afghanistan, is he simply having an ewith the troops on the day to mark the anniversary? no, he is trying to sell the what is not the most popular policy. you know what, we will be in afghanistan longer than folks want to be. but let me say why we will be there. i don't want to repeat 1989 when the u.s. abandoned afghanistan
to be the same page as the united states, though, right? the united states would accept a little bit more, right? >> i don't think that's the united states' position. i think it's confined enrichment to 5%, limited to the medical isotopes. move anything above 5% out of the country or secure it, have full transparency and 24/7/365 day a year access for the iaea to all these sites. and then be willing to also talk about other things, which is what the iranians have wanted to do. i am hopeful. in my view it's the best chance of a solution. of course this is the p-5 plus one, so it's a unique bargaining agent, you might say. >> when you talk about access, i want to ask you about israel in a second, israel issue, but access. i have this picture which i know looks a little strange. the associated press obtained this from a government that is skeptical of iran's honesty in its nuclear program and they say this is a chamber used for testing explosives of nuclear weapons. we did make some calls and experts did say indeed this could be consistent with that but we haven't skbant independe identified the so
the united states will be involved in afghanistan after u.s. troops leave the country in 2014. >> i've come to afghanistan to mark a short moment for our two nations. to do so on afghan soil. i'm here to affirm the bonds between our countries, to thank american and afghans who have sacrificed so much over these last ten years and to look forward to a future of peace and security and greater prosperity for our nations. >> we can expect to hear more about in his president's address coming up shortly. he addressed u.s. forces at the air babes and waded in the crowd for hand shakes, thanked them for all the sacrifices they have made. he said he could not be more proud to be their chief. ed, we're getting dribbles from the white house what the president will say tonight. >> we got a preview from the president himself as soon as me landed in afghanistan, basically he made some quick remarks we're saying that we did not choose this war. it came to us on 9/11. he also said the battle is not over but this is the beginning of the end basically of america's longest war. we got a preview there and also
of the united states was not really the president of the united states. he intimated that president obama is secretly foreign. that was the basis of the donald trump flash in the pan candidacy years ago. >> why doesn't he show his birth certificate? i think she should. three weeks ago when i started, i thought he was bomrn in this country and now i have doubt. >> based on what? >> his grandmother said he was born in kenya and she was there and witnessed the birth. he doesn't have a birth certificate or he hasn't shown it. if you are going to be the president of the united states you have to be born in this country and there's a doubt as to whether or not he is. >> that little brain curdling wallow in celebrity driven up chuck came to an abrupt end about one year ago when on a wednesday afternoon, the president of the united states held a press conference at the white house to release his freaking birth certificate, to put that nonsense to rest. that was on a wednesday afternoon. three days later on saturday, it was the white house correspondence dinner where the president devoted a signif
republican seat. she will be a terrific general election candidate and a great addition to the united states senate. >> caller: she is running against a war hero, bob kerry, who is very popular. so this will be fascinating. >> it is interesting, the polls shower, even as not well known as she was, beating kerry handily, in large part because he has spent the better part of a decade, living in new york city, contemplating a run for mayor in new york city. that's not a good way to get favor in nebraska. >> greta: coming up, vice-president joe biden gets very loud. what got him so riled up? you have to hear the fiery speech. next. obamacare or no care? some college students are going to end up with no insurance. and the university president says the president's health care law is to blame. preliminary rivals or frenemmies. chris christie is teaming up with a democratic mayor. what is the duo up to? you have to see it to believe it. you do not want to miss this. what makes sam adams boston lager great is as simple as abc. a, the appearance. amber. [ jim ] b, balance. sam adams has malt sweetness
says that he understands how to read a balance sheet. does the president of the united states understand how to read a balance sheet? >> you know what? i know a lot of people who understand how to read balance sheets. i'm not sure that i would want all of them to become president of the united states. what was remarkable is what mitt romney didn't say. he didn't explain a single thing that he learned as the leader of bain capital that would translate into being president of the united states. i think that was the problem. up with specific thing he did say that we could really learn from is he talked about one company that bain capital did invest in, which is a company that bain capital invested $18 million in. maybe he learned that government helps create jobs twice as much as private equity. >> what was your reaction? >> i thought it was really weird. it seemed like our decision was no decision at all. you just said i don't know. that is what we are seeing over several days. this was an interview that was by no means a hard ball set of questions but basic questions like tell
reverend wright had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> you know, they haven't had any. president obama was clear that mr. wright's views didn't reflect the president's views. this required moral leadership on mitt romney's part to stand up to the extreme voices in his party. once again, he didn't rise to the occasion. one of the things he tried to do today is equate this hateful attack with a simple discussion of governor romney's economic record we had in this campaign. we've seen this from romney before. he didn't stand up to one of the symbolic heads of the republican party, rush limbaugh when he made those hateful comments against sandra fluke. we've been clear whether supporter of the president or person that used this rhetoric, and romney didn't stand up. >> he said he repudiated this style of campaign. do you believe him? >> he was asked later in the day about his comments earlier in the year about reverend wright you played not too long ago. he said he stood behind them. time and time again, he had the opportunity to stand up to the extrem
,000 syrians dead. today the only response was symbolic. eight countries including the united states expelling syrian diplomats. in the year when the president is running on his foreign policy victories syria is becoming a lightning rod. >> this administration has a foreign policy which abandons american leadership. i know because i visit with these people that they are ready to help these people and they are helping them some. it cries out for american leadership. >> and today mitt romney said the president's lack of leadership has resulted in a policy of paralysis and we should work with partners to arm the opposition. now, that is something a lot of people -- that's a lightning rod in itself. and the obama administration is holding firm on its stance of no military action. >> no military action is always an option. and we haven't in this case removed options from the table. we do not believe that militarization for the situation in syria at this point is the right course of action. we believe it would lead to greater chaos and greater carnage. >> but will american intervention stop blood sh
in the united states. take a look at one bite of sean's interview. >> reverend jeremiah wright has this box with an email, with an offer to buy his silence from a close confidante of the president, eric whittaker. he didn't name him in the book, but he mentioned that in the tapes. moving on from that because we played that, if you ask if obama knew that whittaker offered the money. he doesn't give the answer i would suspect. but here's what he said. >>. >> that's a long meeting. >> yeah. >> was he aware that eric whittaker had offered you -- >> no? >> klein didn't come out of a swamp. he is the editor of the new york times magazine, but it's suffering a total blackout in the press. is that correct? >> of course it's news and should be covered. and does it surprise you that nbc, abc, cbs haven't said a word about this book? look, here's the narrative from now until election day. if it advances obam ait will be covered. if it hurts him in any way, it's going to be spiked. consider this -- when bush ran for re-election, there were a slew of books that came out against him. they were all over t
? >> god bless you. god bless the united states of america. now i want to shake some hands. >> the breaking news at this hour is that president obama is on his way back to the united states after his address to the nation from bagram airfield in afghanistan on the one-year anniversary of s.e.a.l. team six's successful mission to get osama bin laden. tonight the commandener chief hailed the united states military's accomplishments in afghanistan. >> we broke the taliban's momentum. we built strong afghan security forces. we devastated al qaeda's leadership taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders. and one year ago, from a base here in afghanistan, our troops launched the operation that killed osama bin laden. the bold goel that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is now within our reach. >> the president then described the path forward for the united states after its combat troops withdraw from afghanistan by the end of 2014. >> emerge from a decade of conflict abroad and economic crisis at home. it's time to renew america. an america where our children live free from
of the president of the united states being secretly foreign. that is your history forever. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell". >> wow, talk about a coincidence, the biggest liar of the presidential campaign is raising money tonight in vegas, with america's biggest pathological liar. mitt romney accepts and plays the trump card. >> doubling down vegas style. >> honeymoon in vegas. >> mitt romney's fund-raiser. >> a $2 million las vegas fund-raiser. >> with donald trump tonight. >> i want to say thank you to donald trump for his endorsement. >> donald trump. donald trump. >> why? >> why? >> why? >> the place of birth movement. >> you are courting disaster. >> this is about raising money. >> mitt romney is not going to have trouble raising money. >> how do you let a guy, donald trump. >> chair a $2 million fund-raiser who thinks that the president of the united states is illegitimate. what is the benefit here? >> i just don't even -- >> i thought your introduction was highly inappropriate. >> there is some very nasty undertones. >> he was born in kenya. >> this is the most obn
. >> 10 years ago, the united states and our allies went to war to make sure that al qaeda could never again use this country to launch attacks against us. despite initial success, for a number of reasons, this war has taken longer than most anticipated. in 20 02, osama bin laden and his lieutenants established safe haven across the bordener pakistan. america spent nearly 8 years fighting a different war in iraq. and al al qaeda's extremist alls have waged a brutal insurgency. but over the last 3 years, the tide has turned. we broke the taliban's momentum. we built strong afghan security forces. we devastated al qaeda's leadership, taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders. one year ago, from a base here in afghanistan, our troops launched the operation that killed osama bin laden. >> sean: here with reaction to the surprise presidential trip, a former bush adviser, karl rove. welcome back, sir. >> thank you, sean. thanks for having me. >> sean: i don't have a problem with the president going to afghanistan. i don't want to talk about his -- his trip in terms of politics. but his ad a
a republican with enough working digits to handle a been and become president of the united states. >> that was the most shameless statement by the tax cutting right by what they need in the white house. someone to cut the taxes and stay out of the way of anyone else. i was in the room for that speech, and i thought, they really don't think they need a president. you may think that's human being rouse on his part, and to some extent it is. >> who came up with that word? >> i thought he -- >> okay, it means smart alack. >> if you look at the primaries and everybody grover gets to sign, then he is right. this is the core of the republican philosophy, a hard line on taxes, simple to understand, jon huntsman did not sign it, and he went nowhere. so what grover is saying yes it's full of pride, but it also happens to be true. >> every time i go to a business convention that you probably love to go to, the reward weekends for these guys they all play golf and their all for tax cuts. and they all like this guy. and every member of congress, all of the candidates for president signed this
to him. >> eduardo saverin wants to de-friend the united states of america just to avoid paying taxes. and we aren't going to let him get away with it. >> shepard: senator schumer are announcing legislation called the expatriot act. it would apply to anybody who has had to pay an average of $148,000 in income taxes. folks within that group who have renounced their citizenship in the last decade would have to prove they didn't do it just to avoid paying taxes. if they fail, the acted would flap a heavy tax on future u.s. investments and prevent them from ever again returning to the united states of america. the fox business network's peter barnes is live in washington. peter, this facebook co-founder's representative says is he going to pay everything he owes but it's not clear exactly what that means. >> well, shep, he does not get out of jail free. under existing tax law, saverin has to pay something called an exit tax, which everybody pays when they give up their u.s. citizenship. that would likely be 15% capital gains taxes on the value of his assets on the day before he renounced
's next. >> this is a fox news alert. the united states embassy in kabul, afghanistan, sounding its alarm, after a large explosion was heard in the city, less than two hours after president obama flew out of afghanistan tonight. we will bring you near more on the breaking news as we get it. tonight, donald rumsfeld is here and he says that u.s. special ops are the center of the campaign and says that that may be good for the candidates and not for the troops. he will tell you why. tonight, president obama under cover of night, take egg surprise trip to afghanistan afon the anniversary of bin laden's death. and another one. yes a new scandal and it could be the most despicable yet. the culprit, a high-ranking intelligence officer and there could be more. just in minutes. but first, one year after u.s. forces kill osama bin laden, president obama addressing the nation from afghanistan. >> some people will ask why we need a firm timeline. the answer's clear. our goal is not to build a country in america's image or to eradicate every vestige of the taliban. these objectives would require many
that affects only my district, in other districts in the united states, which signals out the residents of the district of columbia and say you women will not be subject to the constitutional mandate of roe versus wade. you alone can have an abortion only until 20 weeks. by the way, don't talk to us about how this violates the 14th amendment as well, which treats you differently from women in other states. not only are we going to try to impose that on you, but we don't want to hear from the only voice you have in the house, you have no voice in the senate, we shut her up, so we don't hear from d.c. residents at all. fortunately, we do have a young woman who has gone through this experience who has a very relevant story to show. but nobody who can speak for, who has been elected by the representatives of the district ofya columbia, an all-male panel will hear why they should have their roe versus wade with rights discussed tomorrow. >> in this case, he's specifically going after d.c., but he has pushed anti-abortion legislation every time he has the opportunity. why do you think somethi
to the united states using a service like this can end up dependent for her immigration status in this country on the american man to whom she has just been married for a fee. and if that man starts beating her up, a woman can kind of be trapped. you don't want to stay with the abusive guy who bought her hand on the internet, but if she leaves, she may get forted. that's the choice, stay with the man who's beating you or get deported. to help women out of that disgusting and dangerous trap, there is a program by which women who are being abused and whose immigration status depends on being married to their abuser, those women can in a low-key way without tipping off the guy who is beating them, they can apply for legal immigration status in this country that's unconnected to the abusive husband. it is a special visa program under the violence against women act. republicans in washington are right to roll that back. the violence against women act was first passed almost 20 years ago. when he was in the senate, vice president joe biden wrote the original bill. it passed with bipartisan support.
there's no safe place in china. the talk should have been about getting him to the united states. not just himself, but his wife who was beaten severely overand over again, and all of those that helped him. and the chinese human right's activist that took him in her car to beijing. he is under house arrest or custody right now. there a lot of people we have concern for. unfortunately with the timeline of this summit, he was literally pushed out the door with some very vague, and i would say ineffective assurances, and now he realizes it and wants to come to the united states with his wife and friends. >> congressman, you're a politician and you have studied these situations for a long time. why would the chinese allow us to score an international propaganda victory of this sort, where we take one of their people, one of their citizens and the families who say back on a plane with our secretary of state, take them out of the country in the face of this diplomacy, to walk out with some people saying we're saving them from their own government, why would the chinese government ever
, donald trump. >> chair a $2 million fund-raiser who thinks that the president of the united states is illegitimate. what is the benefit here? >> i just don't even -- >> i thought your introduction was highly inappropriate. >> there is some very nasty undertones. >> he was born in kenya. >> this is the most obnoxious swill. >> a kind of feud between donald trump and george will. here's how it standarded. >> the cost of appearing with this bloviating. >> george will may be the dumbest and most overrated political commentator of all time. >> i don't understand the benefit, what is romney seeking? >>> the romney campaign gets too celebrate their victory in the texas primary tonight and they're clinching of the republican nomination, officially. they get to celebrate that tonight in las vegas. where the romney campaign collided with the bloviating ignoramus on tv today. you have one second to guess what he's going to talk about. time's up. >> nothing's changed my mind. his mother is definitely in the hospital, they don't even know which hospital it was. his grandmother said he was born
sample so you can too. >>> we revere the constitution of the united states in this country, but daily show writer kevin blier doesn't. he has actually rewritten it. we'll discuss his rewritten version, and yes, i will ask to see his law school grades. and, barney frank is here to discuss how america has changed and not changed since he came out 25 years ago. you will see a video of a child singing a hate song about gay people in church. and in the rewrite, newt gingrich's lying defense of the republicans -- of who the republicans are counting onto help turn out the racist vote for mitt romney. graduation, huh ? crazy, right ? well, with this droid razr by motorola on verizon 4g lte, you guys can stay in touch.

many are just hoping the euro survives including all of us here in the united states. peter kenny is managing director of knight capital. peter this is sort of the wake-up call. i mean we've known now for a year. the last month the market was this bad was september and that was because of what was going on in europe. but how bad is this going to get? >> it could get a lot worse. the euro today traded at 123, just shy of 124 versus the dollar and that's the lowest it's been. that's a two-year low. the trend is clearly lower. there doesn't seem to be any near-term support for the currency and it is all about the risk off trade. which is why gold caught a bit, the dollar seems to have caught a bit. >> shawn, how much worse could this get? for americans saying this is an awful feeling where you have no control, it could get a lot worse and go on a lot longer and you see your own 401(k) getting decimated. >> that's true. i think there will be a greek exit from the euro very, very quickly. because of the run on the bank situation. it's going to cause a credit crunch because none of the
they are incapable for standing up for allys of the united states. i will be joined by former secretary donald rumsfeld. the doctor ran a vaccination program and held the cia to verify that obama was in fact at the compound in pakistan. that's why they believe he is being held because i assisted the united states. but according to the judgment that was obtained by fox news, he is provided for providing financial and medical assistance to a militant group. his family, they are not buying it. his brother told fox news the blame has been placed on my brother because of america. we should get justice and protection. and a state department's smokes man was asked about the brother's claim. listen to the response. >> i'm not sure they have approached us requesting assistance, other than raising it very publicly as we have done via secretary of clinton, you know, and raising it consistently in our meetings with pakistani government officials, it's unclear to me what else we could do for his case. about we take it very seriously. the secretary is very clear in her remarks saying that there is not any b
